This is a simple script to install Settlers II. On WineHQ people complained about Fog of War. I did not encounter any problems (using an nvidia card). Can people please test this script to see if this works?

Furthermore, I have tested this script using a private copy of the game. I hope someone can test this game and give feedback on if a no cd crack is required or not. Can I send this in for validation, even if it was only tested using a backup?

Instead of advising the use of crack please add
POL_SetupWindow_message_image "Please note that this game has a copy protection system\\nand sadly, it prevents Wine from running the game.\\n\\nPlayOnLinux will not provide any help concerning any illegal\\nstuff." "Note about copy protection" "$PLAYONLINUX/themes/tango/warning.png"

The rest of the script seems to be correct.

When running it, I get "failed to update/create default01.cfg"
Someplace, I read this file can be found in "C: |users||My Documents|S2|users", so
- I replaced the symlink drive_c/users/login_name/My Documents (was pointing to /home/login_name) with a real mkdir -p drive_c/users/login_name/My Documents/S2/users
- I touched a file named default01.cfg there

Nothing got better, still getting the same err message.
I my log file, I see no reference to this file.
